With any luck, Philadelphia's DJ Jazzy Jeff will bring summer time with him as he touches down in London to headline the Doctor's Orders landmark, 250th night since it was started by Spin Doctor in 2005.

DJ Jazzy Jeff is a fitting guest as a bona-fide hip-hop legend responsible for classic jam "Summertime" (with Will Smith), and a dynamite DJ with a record box stuffed with golden-age classics, and the glorious funk, soul and jazz records they sample.

Plus, he's a proper, old-school hip-hop DJ who works the mixer like an instrument, cutting, scratching and beat-juggling like it's 1989.
